Jackals Weekly Release: Jan. 26Wednesday, January 26, 2011
The Elmira Jackals are back at First Arena this Friday, Jan. 28 and Sunday, Jan. 30 when they host the Wheeling Nailers and the Reading Royals. This weekend is the final chance to see Elmira at home before the team heads out west for six games.
The Jackals have had two tight games with the Nailers this season, with both games going to overtime and the Nailers earning the extra point with an extra-session win each game. Elmira fell to Wheeling on Oct. 22, 3-2, in a game that saw Justin Donati score his first two goals of the season. The Jackals ended a stretch of five games in six days with an overtime defeat to the Nailers in Wheeling on Nov. 7, 5-4.
Elmira defeated Reading, 6-3, in the last meeting between the two clubs at First Arena on Jan. 15. The win by the Jackals ended a nine-game regulation unbeaten streak for the Royals.
